This is not true. Check your IG Codex. First, if you take the Light Infantry doctrine you can only get one sniper per squad, so no pairs there. Secondly, if you take snipers as part of a Special Weapons Squad you can take up to three, so you could have a pair but you could just as easily have one or three. They do not form into pairs like Heavy Weapons teams.Originally posted by Childe@Jul 2 2004, 11:05
You get snipers in the special weapons support group for HQs (or one of the doctrines lets you take them in Infantry platoons I think), and yes they do form into two man teams just like all other IG heavy weapon teams.
yea youd think anything that hits on 2s and wounds on 4s would be welcom in the guardOriginally posted by General Nuke Em@Jul 27 2004, 20:00
I thought sniper rifles have a special rule that says it doesn't use the BS of a model and always hits on a 2+?
